Park run #10

New Park run, my 4th venue and run number 10.

What a lovely place to run at Holkham Hall, scenery is perfect. Route is a bit hilly but last 1k downhill was my best time for a 1k at just under 6 mins. Total time 32 mins 54 mins but I did stop to take a couple of photos and walk up the hills a bit ๐Ÿ˜‰

If youโ€™re ever in North Norfolk on a Saturday this is well worth a visit. Free parking, cafe for post run coffee and a very friendly bunch of volunteers.

Back to caravan and cooked breakfast waiting. What more could you want, other than perhaps the rain to stop ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

You couldnโ€™t want for more ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Ok a bit of dry weather wouldnโ€™t come amiss but we canโ€™t have it all

Parkrun tourism! We are running for the economy too๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ

That looks a great place to run!

It is definitely worth a visit and you can park all day for ยฃ3 if you want to stay after the run. Free for run and short stay for drinks

Jealous but itโ€™s very kind of you to check out all my local runs while Iโ€™m injured ๐Ÿ˜‚

Sorry ๐Ÿ™ which one should I try next week?

๐Ÿ˜‚ I think youโ€™ve done them all! The only one Iโ€™ve done is Kings Lynn which honestly is a bit boring! The Walks is a nice park but running around it three times isnโ€™t the most exciting run....

You should definitely do Holkham. Iโ€™ve not tried Sheringham Park yet but heard that has a killer hill towards the end ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Still a few more to try in Norfolk

Will do Hilkham one day when Iโ€™m back - and we used to be over near sheringham park and walk our old dog around there every Sunday- itโ€™s beautiful but VERY hilly - good training Iโ€™m sure but Iโ€™d its the one I think it is then ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Not too bad for me. I always feel Iโ€™m struggling. There were only 40 runners behind me out of 227 but who cares ๐Ÿ˜Š

There were less than that behind me out of about the same amount! Thing is, in bad weather, the slower runners and walkers donโ€™t come out.
